Specific kernel build

Recommended Posts

I have spent a considerable amount reading docs and getting my head around building a custom default kernel & desktop image. Patching the kernel and optimising the desktop environment is working well. The remaining question is:


How do I select a specific - kernel 4.4.174 (based on armbian-release 5.75) ? It defaults to 4.4.176 and 5.86.

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

Actually, I have found a similar topic question in the forum.


"Add: KERNELBRANCH='tag:v4.14.52' to build/userpatches/lib.config"


I will give this one a go.


Looks like this was a red herring. I had a look at the relevant git repo and it reports:


root@ubuntu:~/build# git ls-remote -t https://github.com/rockchip-linux/kernel.git

2801809213b2ebda0ab877ede0354d48fe95cde1    refs/tags/release-20171213


So the correct structure should be KERNELBRANCH='tag:release-yyyymmdd'.
